Here is my super-duper package from sheepBlue! Prepare for major spoilage:


super cute card, HP pouch (!) with HP fabric on the inside too! and two awesome necklaces. I'm in love with the armadillo charm!!


awesome tapes, jewelry wire, and sweet stuff for mixed media--I freaked out over the doll glasses Smiley


the world's most amazing beads! beautiful lamp work glass that I don't think I can ever give up, patterned wood beads, gorgeous metal beads, brass/red stone charms, and a whole baggie full of SB's awesome moon faces!! MOON FACES!!


an amazing, huge bag packed FULL of metal findings--gorgeous filigree pieces, bead caps, charms, jump rings--so many beautiful things...some large focal pieces (stone, wood, metal, shell), a magnetic skeleton key, a hotel keychain thingy, some lovely chain, and a whole baggie of bottle cap blanks.

I couldn't have asked for a better package. Thanks so much, sheepBlue--I adore everything! Smiley

I wanted to share a necklace I put together last weekend. It's like the beads were talking to me!

Awesome package received from hgddm. Most of the beads are ceramics but there are also some stone ones as well. I love the different shapes and colors of the beads. They are mostly larger focal beads so it will be fun to come up with some designs for them. She also sent me 2 pairs of earrings. They are just the right size. Thanks for everything!!

I received two very lovely packages yesterday!  Let's take a look at all the soupy goodness...

First is the package I received from Ratfinkz.


Blue, Red and Purple Lampwork


A few mixes, including stone, smaller beads and hearts!


Some giant shell pieces


And some lovely charms that I'm sure will find their way into some charm bracelets. Cheesy


She also sent a lovely necklace of amethyst chips and silver spacers.  You can see it in the top photo, laying across the back.  The picture I took ended up being very fuzzy. Sad  I'll see if I can get another picture soon.  Smiley

Thank you so much Ratfinkz!!!   Kiss

EDIT:  Here's a better picture of the necklace.

And now the package from Anna!


Lots of glass in the colors I use most often, black, blue and purple!  As well as some beautiful freshwater pearls. The paper on the side is a sewing pattern, showing how to make some fancy stitches.  It's dated from 1904!


Some lovely silver focal beads...


Cute little nesting doll beads!


Some beautiful Swarovski crystal, stone, glass, and some amazing giant bead caps.  I think I already have a plan for these guys!


And finally, a lovely wrap bracelet.  Ratfinkz and Anna must have been on the same page, because the beads are amethyst, so their crafted items actually match one another!  The bracelet fits perfectly, and will get lots of use.  (While I make charm bracelets for everyone else, I can't really wear them because they get in the way at work, and often snag the fabrics I'm working with.  This is the perfect solution. Smiley)




Thank you Anna!  It will all be put to good use quite soon.   Kiss
